We exchanged avocados for plantains…

My best friend gave me cluster of plantains that his grand father grown. Here in Puerto Rico is very common to have plantain plants in the yard.

Obviously, having so many plantains in my kitchen, entertained during the weekend. I decided to make plantain chips with the half of the plátanos and I sauteed the other half which I will also provide you the recipe.

This baked plantain chips are pretty healthy and can be use for a snack, a pick me up or as many say for the”munchies”. With this baked plantain chips recipe you have a vegan, healthy and delicious recipe. The plantain chips are really easy and fast to do. You add the flavor you like the most (I used sea salt, garlic and oregano). The best fact of this recipe is that you can control how much salt you add to the chips because the plantain chips that many markets sell, usually contain high amounts of sodium.
